ABOUT MELISSA

I feel lucky to have grown up around my two grandmothers, both artists, who taught me to value the importance of beautiful artwork. Inspired by their artistry and commitment, I attended Syracuse University and graduated with a degree in Surface Pattern Design and have been working in textiles as an Artist, Color Consultant, Stylist and Design Director for over 20 years. 

 As an art lover, entrepreneur and mother of two, I am a firm believer that life is what you make it. At a place in my life where I was in transition from a divorce and beginning a new life as a single mom, I made the decision to live boldly as a watercolor painter and illustrator. I followed my passions and dove into what made me truly happy – creating beautiful artwork. From here my creative expression began to blossom and continues
to teach me more and more about myself through my process and painting.

I find watercolor to be magical and working with the softness and fluidity of this medium reminds me of the beach waves near my home. The beach is a huge influence in my work and it is here where I find peace and inspiration on my daily walks with my golden retriever, April.  I hope my artwork brings you as much joy as it does me.
